In 1890 while Edward Hyatt was revolutionizing the face of education, with San Jacinto as one of his crowning achievements, Mrs. Mary Fowler organized the areas first library association, charging an annual fee of $1.20 for membership. Over the next seventy five years the library moved several times; starting in 1908 in the old water district building on Ramona and Main, to the Chamber Building on Jordan St. in 1930, and in 1965 relocating to a building on central Main St. The San Jacinto Library joined forces with the Riverside County Library System in 1967. In 1991 the Library made the Bank of Hemet building its home, before settling in the current “joint use” facility located on the San Jacinto High School campus in the year 2000. 

In 2016, Riverside County 3rd District Supervisor, Chuck Washington, the City of San Jacinto and Riverside County Library services came to an agreement on a new site.  A temporary location, 4,000 sq. ft. city-owned parcel next to San Jacinto City Hall will serve as a temporary home for the public library.  The relocation will provide much needed additional space for the library programming while continuing to offer amenities to the public such as free Wi-Fi, computer use and a comprehensive collection to the public.

Riverside County Library Services strives to create a welcoming environment for patrons of all ages with diverse programming, knowledgeable and helpful staff, and a host of available services.
